• I’m a lot late to this as I’ve been thinking about a word for the year & mercy of all things is popping up

    I know that I expect way too much out of a broken body & it needs mercy, permission to rest & recharge so that I can continue.

    I realized after Monday at the Y that I feel better physically, mentally & spiritually AFTER exercising.

    I nee…[Read more]

  • Busy, busy, BUSY!!!! Finishing as much cleaning out as possible this week. Some of it is going very slowly as it’s papers and old letters. I was going through letters that I had written to my husband when he was deployed for 6 months the first year we were married (he was gone on our first anniversary). We were SO young! Some of those letters were…[Read more]

  • Very long! Greenville has set a date of March 15th for Randy to start work at their location (he’s working for them already here in Waco). We want to get the house on the market by the beginning of March. That means that all cleaning out and painting has to be finished by mid February so we can get the new flooring done by the end of February. Crazy times!

  • Today is not going so well. Hubby’s home sick with a stomach bug and I think I have it also.😖 But not, so far, nearly as bad as him. So I’m running behind on everything as we both went back to bed. I will be working hard to get my steps and liquids in today.

    Breakfast was some cheerios and blueberries

    I have no idea what the rest of my meals…[Read more]

  • I’m a day late with this, but better late than never! I got all my steps in and even added some additional exercise to meet my goal of adding some twice a week. Today it was wall push-ups. 25 of them to be exact. However, I did fall very short on getting my 80 ounces of liquids in.

    I had lunch with my sis and DIL It was a belated birthday gift…[Read more]

  • I’m tired. Hubby had a bad night last night so I did also. A bit of stress going on about his work. The program he was on ended with 2017, As of lunch time, they (work hadn’t started him on anything else. He was supposed to be starting work for the group in Greenville. We’ll see what happens. Hopefully, it’s just a slow start after the two weeks…[Read more]

  • Just a quick check-in. Things have been crazy busy in my life and things got pretty much off track. But today I got all my fluids in AND all my steps in! YAY! First time in over two weeks!

  • Happy New Year! I’ve decided that 2018 is going to be my year! This week is all about getting back on track. Tuesday is catch up on housework day. Wednesday thru Friday will be about getting more of my house cleaned out. Getting back to getting my steps and liquids in. Hopefully adding two days of exercise.

  • <p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>We had that same exact situation with my father in law and the woman he married after my mother in law died. I have to confess that I did tell her off one day. She was “telling stories” about my mother in law that were total lies. Unfortunately for her, the story she decided to tell me that day was one that I had…[Read more]

  • Hubby is sending in his acceptance letter today for the job. Packing and purging feels like it will never end.

    I’m liking Good Measures. Not much weight loss due to the mild case of diverticulitis. The foods that need to eat for recovery are ones that make me gain. BUT! Working with Good Measures has kept me from gaining! I haven’t lost but I…[Read more]

  • It’s been a long time since I posted here. Sorry about that! Things have been crazy here.

    I’m battling a mild case of diverticulitis and packing up and cleaning out like crazy! Hubby is sending in his official acceptance letter for the new job today. He’s on vacation until January 2nd and I can see my stress levels ramping up already! 😁

    We have…[Read more]

  • My word is going to be  confident . I need to trust in what I’m doing is right.  Confidents that my choices are important.

    I’m here & trying.  Life has been so challenging since 11/3 ( hubby had RNY with issues & a week in rehab) between hubby, wee one relapsing with cutting & the eldest with her issues, THEN realizing my mother in law is at her mortal end but just won’t let go (I’m too bloody much like her I fear).  Personality issues in a hobby of mine left me feel…[Read more]

    Today will be a busy day. With hubby finally finding out this week about whether or not he has a job in Greenville, I’m shifting into high gear as far as getting my house cleaned out. I’m going to call the used book store and see if they’ll take all the books. I also have a few big boxes that my husband brought…[Read more]

  • Tomorrow starts week 2 of my two week free trial with Good Measures. This week has certainly been a week of learning for me! I’m looking forward to this week!

    Most of my week will be focused on packing up what we want to keep and getting rid of the rest. We get word on whether or not my husband will get a job up in Greenville this week. And if…[Read more]

    Yesterday was a not so good day for me. We have a cold front pushing in (should be here Tuesday) and it’s blowing all the pollens from up north (northwest?) down on us. My allergies are horrible, stuffy, coughing, sneezing and my eye lids keep sticking together. Today looks like it is going to be worse. 😣

    Today I HAVE to get laundry done. That’s…[Read more]

    Today has been a very long day. I woke up with a headache and it’s hung on all day. I went and picked up the makings for some homemade spaghetti sauce and added some pre-made turkey meatballs. Hubby’s thrilled, but my stomach is on the iffy side so I don’t know if I will have any.

    We should find out if my husband’s going to be offered a new…[Read more]

  • When I first read this, the word that popped into my head was endure. But really, that’s what 2017’s word should be. I feel like I spent this year just struggling to get through it to the end.

    I think that my word for 2018 is going to be EPOCH. The definition of EPOCH is an event or a time marked by an event that begins a new period or d…[Read more]

    I’ll be praying that both of you have easy recoveries from y’all’s surgeries!

    Today did not start well. I was very cold when I got up and couldn’t seem to get warm. Which leads to me dumping a mug of extremely hot coffee on myself when mu grip gave out on my left hand. (this has happened before but it’s been years). Luckily for me, I was holding…[Read more]
